Easter Recipes: Sweet-Hot Plum-Glazed HamCook a delicious ham this Easter that’ll leave your family in awe.

Ham is often seen as breakfast, or sandwich food, but when done and prepared properly it’s the perfect dish for dinner. Learn how to make a sweet-hot plum-glazed ham that will taste as good as it looks when you find the images on Google.


  • 1 (7-lb.) smoked fully cooked, bone-in ham
  • Garnishes: pineapple, kiwifruit, green onions, black sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup plum preserves

How to Cook

Ham and garnishes aside, stir the other seven ingredients together in a saucepan over medium-high flame. Bring to a boil as you stir. Reduce the heat to medium-low, for 5 minutes – or until the preserves have melted.

Trim the excess fat from the ham to approximately 1/8-inch thickness. Place ham on a wire rack with an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan. Brush ham with a portion of the plum preserve mixture in the saucepan.

At 350 degrees Fahrenheit, bake the ham for 1.5 hours. Baste the ham with the remaining plum preserve every 30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil and bake for another 1 hour and 45 minutes. Baste again every 30 minutes.

Microwave the plum preserve in your microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute and serve with warm mixture.
